We are excited to announce we have exceeded our goal of $17,000! Thank you to everyone for all of your continued support. There is still one day left in our campaign if anyone has any last donations. Thank you again and we'll be sure to continue to update you on our progress as we make our way to Huntsville!

New goal: $17,000

October 24, 2019

The 49er Rocketry team is blown away by the support of alumni and friends -- we have surpassed our goal and would like to continue on this momentum to establish a new fundraising goal of $17,000 to be able to purchase the needed materials for the Spring 2020 NASA Student Launch Competition. 


Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our team and program thus far in the semester! We hope to hit our new goal and be able to purchase the needed materials to be successful.

We've passed halfway!

October 18, 2019

We are excited to announce that we have passed $6,000! Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us. With your continued support, we look forward to having a successful year!


The 49er Rocketry Team has been keeping busy the past couple of weeks. We’ve been involved with multiple educational engagement events including volunteering at J.M. Robinson Middle School, Kid’s Fest, and Explore.


We’ve also had the first PDR Q&A session with NASA and are working hard to meet our design deadlines of November 1st. We’ll continue to keep you updated on our progress and post our Proposal and PDR to our website after the submission.


Thank you again for all of your support and we look forward to keeping you updated as we continue to reach our future milestones!
